Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. has impressed both head coach Doug Pederson and quarterback Trevor Lawrence during offseason workouts. "He looks a lot faster," Lawrence said. "He's just going to be that guy when you get the ball in his hands, he's going to make the play." Shenault has always looked good in non-padded practices, but he hasn't been able to translate it to the regular season yet. The former second-rounder caught 63 passes for 619 yards with no touchdowns and 10 drops last year. Even if Jacksonville gets more creative with how they use Shenault in 2022, running back Travis Etienne Jr. and tight end Evan Engram will take opportunities away. Shenault's improvement won't necessarily ensure him a spot as a starter ahead of Marvin Jones Jr., Zay Jones or Christian Kirk.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson (Achilles) is expected to have a large role in the offense whenever he returns, with head coach Doug Pederson calling him a three-down back in March. Robinson was on a tear last year before his Achilles injury in Week 8 derailed his season, as he had rushed 88 times for 482 yards and was eighth in the NFL in rushing yards, seventh in rushing scores and sixth in yards per attempt. When he has been 100%, he has been one of the best players at his position in the entire league. However, although Robinson's recovery has been going well, the team is still in wait-and-see mode with training camp approaching, and Travis Etienne has looked fully recovered from a Lisfranc foot injury that kept him out his entire rookie season. As a result, Etienne is being valued as an RB2 with upside in fantasy, while Robinson is a late-round flier currently.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson (Achilles) is not expected to be ready for training camp. The 23-year-old continues to recover from a torn Achilles that ended his 2021 campaign. Robinson reportedly resumed running in early June, but that doesn't mean he'll be ready for training camp in July. Travis Etienne could very well begin the season as the starter, assuming Robinson isn't ready. His stock will continue to climb until Robinson gets back on the field.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Jamal Agnew (hip) is on track in his recovery process. The 27-year-old suffered a season-ending hip injury in Week 11 of last season. Early reports have Agnew missing the beginning of next season. However, special teams coordinator Heath Farwell mentioned the team is prepared to have Agnew in Week 1. Agnew has primarily been a kicker returner throughout his career, but took a huge step forward in 2021. He set career highs as a wideout and was third on the team in targets before suffering his hip injury. Although, the Jaguars have added Zay Jones and Christian Kirk to their roster this offseason. Agnew could take a step back as a receiver in 2022, but the main focus is getting him back on the field.
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson has been impressed with running back Travis Etienne Jr. so far this offseason. "He's doing a great job handling a lot of information that we're throwing at the guys. We're putting him in different spots and seeing what he can do right now. This is the time to do that stuff, to really experiment on both sides of the ball and see what the guys can do. He's one of those guys," Pederson said. Etienne is recovered from the Lisfranc foot injury that sidelined him for all of his rookie season, and he could be the unquestioned lead back if James Robinson (Achilles) isn't recovered in time for Week 1. But even with Robinson in the fold, Etienne could see plenty of pass-catching work, making him especially intriguing as an RB2 with upside.
